International Year of the Reef 2008

2007 is almost finished, and new year is on the way.
New year means different things to different people, but it will be good for Coral Reefs around the world, thanks to
The International Year of Reef 2008 campaign.
The International Year of the Reef 2008 is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness about the value and importance of coral reefs and threats to their sustainability, and to motivate people to take action to protect them. All individuals, corporations, schools, governments, and organizations are welcome and actively encouraged to participate in IYOR 2008.

Underwater world of Papua New Guinea is recognized internationally as one of the Healthiest in the World. - Last Paradise for Coral Reef.
In some countries, mass tourism is a cause of reef destruction but in PNG, tourism industry has learnt a lesson from other countries, and through PNG Divers Association, we have been trying to protect this great asset of earth from destruction.
Even if you are not scuba diver, please try snorkelling on your next trip to PNG, and feel the life in the mother nature. - It will be worth trying.
